Arvest Bank branches in Fayetteville, Ark., are joining the fundraising efforts for the 11th annual Kiss a Pig Gala for the American Diabetes Association. Arvest associate, Karen Gray, is one of 11 community and business leaders competing at the gala to see who can raise the most money to fight diabetes. Karen’s goal is raise $30,000 by March 1, 2013. Of that she hopes Arvest will help raise $20,000. If Karen is named one of the top fundraisers, then she will kiss a pig at the gala on March 9, 2013! Why kiss a pig? It was the first source of insulin.

The gala* will include entertainment by REO Speedwagon,* dinner, drinks, dancing, a silent auction, and a live auction. You can purchase* individual tickets for $200 or a table for ten for $2,000. Make sure to mark Karen Gray with Arvest Bank as your campaign candidate to help her reach her fundraising goal!

Customers, associates and community members are invited to assist in additional fundraising efforts. One way you can help is by visiting an Arvest branch in Fayetteville and purchasing a pig pin up in any amount, starting at $1. Your name will go on the pin up which will be posted in the branch recognizing your contribution to fighting diabetes. Arvest Fayetteville branches will also have cookbooks, which include the popular Arvest cheese dip recipe, available for a $20 donation. You can also donate directly to the campaign here.* Proceeds benefit the American Diabetes Association.
